I inherited a minature pistol and am curious about what it is

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have three pictures of the pistol other than that I know nothing except it is supposed to be a black powder pistol.
